of all the almost of billions of dollars the federal government has spent trying to save those beaches and restore them again and again every few years. this is going to wreak havoc on all that construction of really beautiful beach we've had over the recent years. >> reporter: absolutely. and actually this boardwalk what i'm told is that this boardwalk used stimulus money to restore it. so if this does go under, obviously that's going to be a big challenge to restore it. but a lot of money has been invested into beach restoration and i did ask the governor how much money in terms of oon economic impact that he anticipated in terms of a shutdown because obviously the state government is shut down. nobody is going to work at the state government, and a big mass of businesses here have closed as well. so you can imagine people not working. that's going to be a huge economic loss, but he said the most important thing is that there are no lives lost at this point. he says he'll deal with the economic losses later as long as they can save lives at this point, chris. >> great reporting. grea

seven children, were killed when government warplanes bombed residential areas in the province of idlib. ariel attacks were also reportedly launched on eastern suburbs of the capital damascus. the top united nations investigator on palestinian human rights is calling for a boycott of all companies linked to settlements in the occupied west bank. the special rapporteur on human rights in the palestinian territories confirms the oldest firms including hewlett packard, a volvo and caterpillar are complicit in the israeli occupation. >> this is an attempt to reach out beyond the intergovernment international institutional systems and one of the things that our report recommends is encouragement of the boycott of these named corporations, and encouragement of civil society actors to join in that boycott. >> the obama administration has rejected this proposal, calling it "irresponsible and unacceptable." planned parenthood has filed a new lawsuit challenging a funding ban in texas that seeks to exclude it from a program for low-income women. the texas program offers cancer and health screenin
. while the stock exchanges get back to business, the federal government is getting down to business in responding to the widespread disaster. sylvia hall has the latest on the federal response. >> reporter: as east coast residents survey the mess sandy brought ashore, federal, state and local governments are already coordinating the cleanup. right now, thousands of workers from every level of government are on a rescue mission in new jersey and new york's hardest- hit areas. fema is pulling in generators and working with power companies to get the lights back on. the storm's damage was so severe that president obama quickly declared major disasters in new york and new jersey overnight. the decision frees up federal dollars to help families and businesses recover their losses. it also allows the u.s. to reimburse local and state governments for some of the expenses they'll face as they rebuild. the east coast may be cleaning up, but sandy isn't finished. the storm is plowing inland, dumping snow across the appalachians. with sandy still churning, it's near impossible tonohow extensiv

. this is something, big government says in this. you have to read to believe, disaster cold face is one of the most vital functions of big government, which is why mitt romney wants to eliminate it. david asman was reading same "new york times," he ripped it up and started eating it. >> it did not taste good. neil: what do you make of this. >> they are little bit sidin politicize a natural disaster, that is what they are doing. if you can move it from state to private sector is goes in a better direction, they say, that is, i quote, an absurd notion. they say because big government is better, whether it is fema or a new department of business that president obama wants too create about which we can talk more if you have time. but bottom line, fema has a terrible track record, most big federal bureaucracies do, they come up with their man made inside of the beltway, which does not necessarily fit when applied to a state or local community, any time there is a difference of opinion with between the local guys and federal government, the feds -- 92 bu92. neil: but they all welcome fema help. >> when i
government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team, you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and interest that i think a leader should be giving to this type of situation. this was as comfortable and relaxing an interaction i've had with the president since i've known him. and i think it's because we're both doing what we want to do, which is to get things done. there will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you guys like it. sometimes you don't. sometimes politicians like it. sometimes they don't. but i say what i feel and what

will be insured by the federal government rather than the insurance industry. and very little impact on insurers'. ashley: 5 looking at information on insurance pricing. rates have been steadily going up over the last year in the wake of sandy they you expect premiums to go higher? >> from an insurance industry perspective, don't mean to sound insensitive, but the loss is not a big enough deal to change the what we are seeing is property reinsurance, stabilization because this has been a pretty good year. >> when you look at the trends and a meteorologist i am not, but i am hearing this is going to be some winter, still storms ahead. what do you think about that? >> you will certainly see a different perspective but one of the flaws of the insurance is does the insurance industry is bad things have to happen. ashley: weather patterns are changing. does this change the strategy of insurance companies moving forward? >> you are seeing a heightened flow level of caution, buying more insurance, in recognition that three bad things happen, it takes a sizable loss. more cautious in terms of aggregate
of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we've got to do this together. >> well, here's what we can do. look, i'm on record, i think turning it into a voucher is a bad idea. i do think, though, that anybody realistically looks at it and says, if we're spending 17% of our gdp on health care and every other country's spending 11% and their outcomes are better, that difference is 6%, that's our deficit and our debt. and so let's find good ideas -- now, i stole a whole bunch of ideas from a massachusetts governor that i think over time is going to save us money. the $716 billion that governor romney suggests i stole from medicare actually is money that we are saving in the system and extending the life of medicare. so i think there are ways we can do this in a creative way. but if we
government is closed. the new york stock exchange is closed. for weather today for the first time in 27 years. and for the very latest on the hurricane's path, let's go right to what mark halperin just described as a national treasure right now, bill karins, our nbc news meteorologist. all right, bill, walk us through -- i know you were saying earlier the storm's taken a little more of a left turn than what was forecast about three hours ago. >> yeah. it's very slight, but it makes a big difference especially for atlantic city, new jersey, long beach island, central jersey. if the storm went right over you, your storm surge would have been less. if it goes south down by wildwood, that means your damage will multiply times worse. let me take you through the time line here. we just made it through our first high tide cycle. we've had major damage up and down the eastern seaboard. now we're headed towards the low tide. the water shouldn't rise any more. so the next event we're watching during the daylight hours is this. this orange cone here, those are the tropical storm-force wind gusts. they h
is for the government has a part to play, but individuals have a part to play, too. you've got to be working together so when people -- some of these people, obviously, their pain is genuine and totally understandable. but some of these people did, you know, were told to leave and didn't leave. and you understand why they didn't. it makes sense in human terms, but, you know, there is a responsibility that you have for yourself in addition to what the government obviously has for you. and again, if both sides are woaren't working together, that's when things fall apart. >> the person talking about they're pulling bodies out of water, the economy has to keep going, and there is potentially, meacham, some sort of symbolism as well. they're grappling with that in other towns and communities up and down the east coast are probably dealing with similar types of decisions as they try and move on. >> it's phenomenally complicated. >> really complicated. >> at what point do you show you're strong, restill yebzisil. >> no better way. >> the debate about what should be done after the attacks 11 years ago. it was t
they are " have to pay to governments, they see in this country we pay more to government if you're a business that any other major country in the world. in the europe their corporate tax rate which is to be higher than ours is now down to 25%. ours is 35%. businesses that are thinking of investing are interested in going elsewhere. kanaka brought their tax rate down to -- canada brought their tax rate down to 15%. i will propose sweeping our corporate tax rate from 35% down to 25%. at the same time we will have to get rid of deductions and exemptions and loopholes so we keep getting the revenue we need, but we want to bring the tax rate down to make america an ohio and more interesting place to invest. small businesses, because small businesses do not a bit difficult tax rate. they pay the individual tax rate. i want to bring it down. i want to bring down the individual rate house well. -- as well. i will make this proposal through our congress on day one. we will get real change in place from day one. there are other things i will do. i will make shall we finally get america on track to have
. macarthur airport. it is having its effect on business and government. we are responding as quickly as possible. obviously we have individuals helping us clean the road and making sure it is safe for people to get back and forth. connell: tony, this is dagen mcdowell. you know when they will clear the bridge to get that moving? >> i spoke with the ceo of long island power authority. their focus is going to be in the next day or two on getting the hospitals and nursing homes established and clearing the major arteries of power lines. we will not be able to get into the neighborhoods that are affected. there are dozens of neighborhoods throughout the south shore until they are able to turn off the power and work on once. several days before residents should expect to see power. they are focusing on the other institutions first. dagen: tony, thank you. >> thank you very much. connell: new york city rescue workers still dealing with this. taking a live look at the crane on 57th street in the heart of manhattan. an astonishing, horribly awful sight as it collapsed yesterday. again, how
most of our constitutional laws don't give the government-elected officials the authority to force people to leave, so what government does do is control the transportation, control the roads, control the buildings. so this is a way to encourage people to leave. >> and when they tell you, you know, to basically get out, that means to get out because they have done all they can. and someone like chris christie, we have the box on the screen because we are waiting on chris christie, the governor of new jersey, he said it last time with a hurricane barreling to new york and new jersey. i'm telling you, get out if you don't. i'm paraphrasing, you are not right, i don't want to say a bad word to people. you have this new book called "leadership" and making decisions in the wake of katrina and other decisions you have made. as you're watching this preparation and watching people like michael bloomberg, people down on the coast, are they making the right decisions? >> they are going in the right direction. in today's world, we have large numbers of people living in concentrated areas and
main message to everybody involved is that we have to take this seriously. the federal government is working effectively with the state and local governments. it's going to be very important that populations in all the impacted states take this seriously, listen to your state and local elected officials. my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. and we're going to cut through red tape. we're not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. we want to make sure we're anticipating and leaning forward into making sure we got the best possible response to what is going to be a big and nasty system. craig, would you like to add something? >> again, as the president says, it's really going to come down to taking protective measures. if you haven't gotten ready, go to ready.gov. but also protect your neighbors. this is a big storm and we need to be there for each other. >> ready.gov for the general public, if you need to know how to respond, that's where you can get centralized information. i think craig's point is exactly right. in ti

government, as well as the president's schedule. scott? >> reporter: dave, good morning. hurricane sandy has just arrived. the winds are picking up and for that reason, the u.s. government is closed -- congress shut down, the federal agencies -- irs and social security closed. as you mentioned, president obama returning here from a campaign stop in orlando this morning to oversee the response. here's a live look at atlantic city, new jersey. they're to the east of us along the shore. the winds are stronger and surf is stiff and nearing record levels. it will approach the record levels later tonight. we have a severe weather situation, so severe in washington, d.c., the instruction is quite clear. "stay indoors." here's president obama talking about hurricane sandy. >> reporter >> going to be slow moving. that means that it may take a long time not only to clear but also to get, for example, the power companies back in to clear trees and to put things back in place so that folks can start moving back home. >> reporter: here's the summary. schools are closed, transit systems are closed, road
timeline as you mentioned as well. the government is predicting that in new york city, the economic loss alone of what i'm just reporting to you is going to be upwards of $7 billion. now, that's an early estimate. and since we don't know when things are going to be up and running again, who knows if that number is going to balloon. look at the -- look behind me. this is as it is, and there is no one doing any work to clear those streets. that's going to be a secondary priority to get -- to making sure everything else is operational in this city. one other thing i want to tell you, just the way new yorkers can be, we get a bad wrap a lot of times here, but we have a live truck operating that has a lot of power and we have neighborhood people who have come and formed to plug in and get electricity for their phones, to charge up their phones. it is a pretty good mood, despite what came through here as mayor bloomberg said the worst storm the city has ever seen, anderson. >> and a lot of parts of lower manhattan too, very spotty cell service, people aren't getting e-mails on their mobile dev
before tuesday's election. it's the october johns report from the government will be released in just about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall.
romney to govern as a conservative, not as a republican in name only. republicans are longing for real conservatism, smaller government. quite frankly, a lot of republicans worry that mitt romney is the guy to do that. right now enough of us in florida who are willing to go from a humongous democrat and from there we'll go to a democrat. we just want a president that puts above the government. >> all you need is a president with a few working digits to sign whatever congress passes. do you really that much care what governor romney's core principles are if he just sips whatever comes out of the house and senate? >> we absolutely care. barack obama said george w. bush signing statements and he made the executive branch too powerful, but it turns out he didn't have a problem with executive orders and signing statements, he had a problem with who was doing it. we and independents in florida want a president who will stay within the parameters of the legitimate authority of the presidency. president obama is not pressing independents in florida by running on bill clinton's record and blami
in 2000, and it raises questions going into governing. so i think what you see is the next day, mitch mcconnell and john boehner the republican leaders in the congress, stand up and say we'll speak for the majority of the country and therefore continue to oppose the president's agenda. >> what about you, amie? any words from inside the white house? are they mulling this prospect of the possible electoral vote split and how it might affect governing? >> i don't think they care so much about the national poll. they haven't really even strategists tell me they haven't even really been focused on that. they're focused on the swing states. so i think that when the president does come back, if he does come back, then he will have to say, you know, this is all in the past, let's all try to work together. but i think they're taking the swing state polling very seriously, and not so much on the other. >> yeah. steve, quickly, hurricane sandy. we know it's canceled events in virginia and new hampshire. how might it impact the race? could this turn out to be an october surprise, do you think? >> ab
. why didn't they cut 10% across the board on state government? why didn't everybody get hit. why is it always education. >> as a matter of fact, we have reduced 40,000 people from state prison without one republican vote. in fact one of the assemblyman said blood will run the streets. add another 10,000 inmates in a neighborhood close to yours? i don't want to go farther than -- further that. the blind and disabled are getting a lower state pension than they were in the 80s. we got rid of redevelopment. things that were important because we couldn't afford it. >> what comes after this? >> what comes after this is we pay down the debts that were incurred by previous governors. we owe the schools $9 billion. we borrowed from them. we owe the recycling fund. we owe local government. we owe 6 billion to the recovery bond. as we pay those off that will lower our spending and as the tax comes off in seven years the income tax, we should be with any kind of recovery on a glide path that we will have a balanced budget. to do that, i will have to be doctor no. it's not a pleasant task. i
of government. philadelphia, boston, new york city, all being affected. we have some estimates that there could be 500,000 trips just cancelled. that is $600 million in lost revenue because people are doing their business. that is a lot of money. >> gregg: a slowdown or shut down in the financial markets. you got that aspect. what about insurance companies? >> very interesting because basically insurance premiums have been going up wildly in the last few years. 5% just in the past year. 22% since 2007. so you can expect upon renewal even if nothing happened to your home, it is very likely that you could see a premium increase. it's been happening for years now. >> gregg: the front of the storm's impact will be felt on the national insurance program which is part of fema. they paid out $1.28 billion in losses last year from irene making it the fourth costly experienced? >> this is will be worse. three storms. we've never seen anything like this. it's definitely going to be devastating. >> gregg: i was reading forbes, i wish we could put it on o up the scream. beside for potential life and safety
to get the trains running. economic impact? obviously for the government this will be an impossible savings. for the unemployment, all the people in construction and design and renovation who have been without jobs for so long, millions if not billions of dollars are on way. if there is a silver lining people are about to be put to work in places like ocean city up and the coast of new jersey and into new york city and on to long island and new england and western pennsylvania and in chicago in the storm that is still on the move. a winter storm now and could dump 2' of snow. we could have record waves on lake michigan in chicago. >>shepard: on the jersey shore the hurricane made the devastating punch on the southern part of the jersey shore south of atlantic city. closer to philadelphia than new york if that helps. nothing as spared. they are back on the fields, now, and around the amusement park. there is standing water, still, in neighborhood after neighborhood, street after street, it looks as if in ocean city, nothing was spareed. roofs appear intact. you can see the roofs okay
with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulations or smaller leaner government to help the private sector to grow and create jobs. he dinged the president in a new ad today suggesting somewhere down the road he may appoint a secretary of business, watch. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? >> reporter: now, as the poll numbers keep moving incrementally as each of the candidates making their final arguments it is interesting to watch the battleground states flip back and forth. obama is up one day, romney sup the next, vice versa. it is clear indication, whether early voting, absentee balloting or getting out there on election day, in these battleground states, jenna, each and every vote really does count in 2012. jenna: in five days anything can really happen as we know as surgeon jalists. john roberts live in virginia today. jon: brand new numbers on the race for the white house with "fox news poll"s showing it is too close to call.
